Recommended Website:

Learn Esperanto!

(free-esperanto-course.net/)

Age Range: 7 and up (Grades 2 and up; children with parental supervision)

 

This website offers a free, fun introduction to Esperanto – a language that was developed to help worldwide communication.

It is not spoken by any particular country or ethnic group; however, it has similarities to Latin, Germanic and Slavic words. Esperanto was deliberately designed to be simple for everyone to learn. It is highly phonetic, making it easy to read, pronounce, and spell.

It was introduced at the end of the 19th century to promote tolerance in worldwide communications as it doesn’t favor any particular people, country, or culture through its use. There are Esperanto websites, clubs, seminars, books, music and more.

Because you can learn the language quickly, kids can speak “Esperanto” around the house, as a sort of “secret language.” Sign up for the free course: it even comes with a tutor!

Some of the lessons include: 

  • Nouns
  • Verbs
  • Adjectives
  • The Alphabet
  • Salutations
  • Numbers
  • And more!

Each lesson has an explanation and then a quiz or exercise to practice what you’ve learned. This course won’t have you speaking fluent Esperanto by the end of the lessons, but it will have introduced you to the basic principles of the language.
